Nostos (coming home), for ‘A Dangerous Field’, shown online, 2020


‘A Dangerous Field’ demonstrates how artists use photography to explore, subvert their ‘field’, or to record and research their subject whilst engaging in the examination of their practices. To view the online exhibition of the work please visit Magdalen Road Studios

During the pandemic Annie Rapstoff and Vicky Vergou began meeting for socially distanced walking as a form of practice. It became clearer during this time, that the land was a place of direct experience both internally and externally.

Annie and Vicky present a photographic image for the online exhibition entitled Nostos (homecoming). The work explores the ephemerality of the performative gesture. The photograph or documentation, becomes an illusion stand in of the walk that was once taken together. It is anticipated that an exhibition of further work will be developed in 2021.
